Be Fearless - Painting Tutorial - "Free"

Hello my Kindred Spirit Friends!

I have a story to tell on overcoming your fears, this painting inspired by e-course "Flying Lessons" from Kelly Rae Roberts. One of the topics that has really gotten my attention is the one of overcoming your fears.

Free tutorial on collaging, painting a face, doodling and applying texture"
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud 
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Quote by Anais Nin

I have been a SAHM for 2 years now, I have taken this time in my life to creating an artistic life that I am 100% plus devoted too. Still there are moments in which I feel my dreams are too big for my britches and that I am going to fall flat on my face, and not make it anywhere but "stuck land".

I am at the moment trying to do so many things, I never been a person that likes to work late, but girl oh girl, I am staying up late at night dreaming my fantasies into reality, editing videos for my you tube channel to share my crafty ideas, working on my first workshop "The Luggage Project" checking my Facebook groups, googling what to do this or that, checking out the blogs and websites of the people I love in the artsy world for inspiring ideas, wow....that was a mouth full I am going "crazy in the head" with all the thoughts I am yet to put down in paper....!

The point is this friends, I am committed to see it thru, win or lose, succeeding of failing... in my endeavors the IMPORTANT THING IS THIS - I WONT GIVE UP, when the going gets hard as sometimes does, I will keep on keeping on....! And if my ideas dont succeed now, maybe I try again and again til they do, til I get better at it!

This free tutorial is me saying to you, and to myself, there is no reason to be afraid, my dreams are real for me, they are also real for you if you dare to follow them. I am! Are you?

If you have a fear you want to overcome, share it with your love ones, share it here with me in the comments, expose the little monster to the world and see how they disappear!!!!

Im not afraid I am not afraid

I am on my way to big things I can feel them in my heart and this moment Im in the process of taking an e-course by Kelly Rae Roberts, called Flying Lessons Tips and Tricks to Help Your Creative Business Soar"

One of the topics we discuss so far is Fear! I sat with the information for a couple of days and all of the sudden one of my biggest fears came to me....and as soon as it happen I said a prayer and the fearfull moment although very vivid and clear dissipated because I face it head on!

Loving each moment of my life, I am strong I can do this....!

I have been filming an online class and every step of the way I am facing one fear after another. My fears said to me; Who do you think you are? What if you don't make it? What if after all you are not good enough? Are you having a grandiose dream of becoming rich and famous?

And then this quiet voice came over me and said,

Brenda you are doing something you love and are passionate about. You are not trying to get famous or having lots of money come to you... YOU just want to do something you like to do, and whatever comes with it you will embrace it wholeheartedly! After all, What you want the memories of you to be like? I know! You want people to love you for who you are, to say she was a dreamer, an adventurer, she was passionate about what she believe in, and she was not afraid to go for it...!

This is my journal page right after I figure out what I really was afraid of! 
And so I say not that I never be afraid again, but instead when that moment do come Im ready to face it,  to push those boundaries and to go for it ANYWAY!

New Paintings!!!

I remember starting this blog and saying to myself I just want to show my artsy moments but I dont want to get personal...I have since then change my mind about this...I want to share who I really am! So here it goes...

These paintings are a product of my feelings, my desire to continuously remind myself of the power of gratitude in my life. I am always trying to be grateful but is so hard for me, I have this character that just blows up when least expected for the smallest things! So this painting reminds me of how lucky I am, how I should be more patient with myself and with my love ones too. If I only see my life with the humbleness is require of me to really be in this precious moment in which I am really alive and here. I have so much I am so lucky!!! 

This other one name bliss, is myself brushes in hand, savoring each precious moment....blissfully! There are many things in my life that bring me to this point, but nothing compares to the absolute power that creating gives me...

I am thankful for the opportunities in my life, for the grace of been here in this precious moment, for having the tools and the time to share my art, my soul here and now....! Thank YOU Lord!
